Super RTL will be airing CGI animated comedy series Leon exclusively in Germany from later this year, after striking a deal with TV-Loonland.

The 52 x three-minute series about one of life's unluckiest lions is a co-production between TV-Loonland, Studio Hari and French broadcaster France 3.

Carsten Goettel, head of programming at Super RTL, said: "Leon fits perfectly into our programming portfolio because it's totally gender neutral, suitable for all age groups, highly valued and appreciated by parents. I am therefore really looking forward to the show being on air."

Justine Bannister, head of distribution and acquisition at TV-Loonland, added: "Striking a deal with Super RTL, the uncontested market leader in Germany's children's TV market, speaks for the programme itself. This deal marks another important step to expand the worldwide presence of Leon."

Super RTL joins the UK's CBBC and France 3 as the third prominent European broadcaster to pick up the show.
